When to Remove Burlap Over Lawn Seed - Knowledgebase Question

Fairport, NY
Question by ndohrn

I recently renovated my front yard and put burlap over the grass seed to protect it from birds and from blowing away. My question is when do I remove the burlap? Grass is starting to grow, but not in all areas. Will it hurt the new grass to keep the burlap on for a while?

The traditional method was to leave the burlap there and just let the grass grow up through it. Eventually the burlap should rot away assuming you used a natural fiber type and not a synthetic.
